171,476 words in the English language
so many to choose from
so many to say
still i’ve heard it
at least 5 times today

just call it what it is
a harsh slap in the face
a verbal assault
a blatant disregard for an entire race

i’m sorry to say this
but there’s no pass, nor
reclamation
it never belonged to you
so you can’t just “take it back,” and
there’s no zip code in the world
that’ll make you black

somehow i’m supposed to be the
“bigger person”
and trust me i’ve tried
i’ve gone years just
blaming ignorance,
assuming the best
accepting “apologies”
and forgiving the rest

and still
you’ll fight
harder to say it
than for
equal rights

171,476
words in the English language
so many to choose from, so many to say
but you still use it
anyway
